No, that transmission is different and the computer will not see the sensors and solenoids it is looking for so you will throw all kinds of codes.

Is there anything you can do to the transmission to make it work?

Expert:  Ted G. replied 5 years ago.
Not really, the computer needs to see the transmission and if it does not then it will code out all over the place. You need a 95 up trans at least and there may even be some sensor conflicts with a 95-96.
